COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An all-sorghum beer. New Grist, a beer for Celiacs brewed from sorghum and gluten-free yeast grown on molasses. New Grist is the first “official” gluten free beer in the U.S., although it cannot technically be called “gluten-free” until established governmental guidelines are determined for all products claiming “gluten-free” status. In the interim, this Celiac-safe beer can be called “barley-free,” and is a welcome product to those who need to live on restricted diets due to intolerance to gluten, a protein found in common brewing grains such as barley, wheat, rye, oats, spelt, kamut and triticale.

Bottle at Cohill’s. I had some hope for this but as with other sorghum beers it’s just bad. Thin body with sweet flavor almost like a cider. There are much better gluten free beers out there. I couldn’t finish it.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that expires 16 Aug 2015. Straw yellow heady pour. Thin aroma of toasted malts and a bit of lemon. Thin watered down body. Thin flavor but the lemon stands out some. Hard to like this beer but it serves a purpose for people on gluten-free diets. My lowest rating in a long time.

This poured a lightly straw yellow with a white head. Aroma of hay, grass, and grain. Flavor was of bland mash water. Bleh.

12 oz single from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Gold and clear with a white head and light lacing. Minimal aroma, minimal flavor, light body. Kind of tough to drink really. I’ve had a few gluten-free beers that were tolerable, but this is not. A very rare drain pour candidate for me. Very bland. Update: Couldn’t finish it... An extreme rarity.

Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with high carbonation. Aroma is fruity. Flavor follows. Very light bodied. Decent gluten free option. But not otherwise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. A good gluten free option, but not suggested if ur not celiac. Not much of an aroma, head or flavor.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear light straw color with a billowy white foamy head with tons of bubbles popping within. The head fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny bit of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a slightly sour lemon aroma mixed with some green apple and a little bit of a more grape like aroma. Along with these are some light cracker smells and a little bit of grass. Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter rice and somewhat grape juice like sweetness. As the taste advances more sourness of a lemon and sour green apple flavor comes to the tongue. A little bit of a cracker flavor that is present at the start as well fades more and more as the taste moves onto the end with it being replaced by a bit of biscuit. With a little bit of a grassy and hay flavor that comes to the tongue at the end, one is left with a somewhat fruity sweet and somewhat unbalanced sour and odd malt flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the flavors and the style of the brew the two were quite appropriate and made for a more easier drinking feel overall. Overall – Ah, nothing too spectacular here. Not offensive, but certainly not a great go to. Ok overall and a decent non-gluten brew.
